Pieces of written English are used to deliver information, express thoughts, and share opinions according to the author’s intentions. Human readers are able to analyze writing and answer the following fundamental questions: What information is the author attempting to deliver to their audience? What other articles, either written by the same or different authors, deliver the same or similar information? What personal opinions and thoughts are addressed in a single article or are common to multiple articles? This project aims to automate such processes making it possible to analyze articles and infer the intent of the author computationally through analyzing their written language. The computerized process can assist in determining what information is present in the writing, allowing a computer user to more easily and efficiently find the information they are looking for, and in making more informed decisions.
